  • just out of interest, what was the rating of the team you played against?

    Check your tactics and make sure it suits the players and your style. What formation?

    But also it's known that this kind of happens. Suddenly you lose because the team plays crao.

    I'm starting to think certain player combinations triggers some kind of a bug. It happens with higher end players. Also formation settings seem to become corrupt. So I create a new formation and add my players to it fresh when this happens and it seems to make a difference.

    I've only been playing Rivals today I've dropped from div 6 to div 8 with this team...

    From what I've noticed the teams have been like new teams 77 to like 82 rated teams with between 80 - 90 chem.

    Face a couple of BPL teams with Lucas Rashford, F Anderson etc. Gameplay is just terrible

    Knew it! I was on the other side of this last night!!! posted this in another thread earlier...something very odd was going on:-



    Played a match last night using the worst Serie A team you've ever seen... (trying to do the last few teams for Politano).

    Got matched against a God team, three icons...Greizman and so on......

    First attack he got....Greizu clean through (i thought FFS here we go!!!)

    ... but incredibly Izzo (having given him a 5 yrd start) catches him tackles him perfectly....nutmegs him once and then turns and Cuauhtémoc Blanco's through him and another attacker. :D

    ....apparently, this is achieved simply by sprinting and pressing B furiously (I don't know where the inputs were coming from but it certainly wasn't me) :D .

    I grant you this was only div 8 but this sort of thing continued and the game ended up 1 each (for which I can take about 10% of the credit....)

    This game really is something else sometimes :D

    4231, 442, 4411, 4321

    Everything is balanced, 5 width, 5 depth.

    Kante , De Jong, cover centre, stay back etc

    Back 4 stay back.

    Midfielders come back defence, balanced etc

    Striker get in behind, stay forward.

    Normall shiz or perhaps I got it all wrong....

    :-s

    Maybe it's better to play with Kante in stead of Kanye, that could be the difference!

    Edit: You was fast :)

    Same here, I bought Mbappe and Pogba, got untradeable Griezmann, also fit in red WBY and Dybala and I've had much better success with a bunch of relatively cheap guys

    I feel the same mate, I had Ben yedder upfront.. switched him to CM for chem and change in game and he was awful.. back up front again and scoring again.

    Ive just deleted the squad and started again. Same players etc... I've not sold up.

    I've noticed that on doing a refresh the same 433 set up for chem, before it was saying 100 chem 86 rated... now it''s saying 100 chem 87 rating.

    Very strange.....

    This is common for the last past years: have a team rated UNDER 83, best with a couple of non-rares in it. EA will do the rest.

    I always thought gameplay was better with a 82-84 rated team, but above that the game becomes extremely random and much harder to fight against. In FIFA 19 my 84 rated team won more matches than my 88 rated team did. Not at all surprised at people discovering it this year.

    Aha! I've long suspected this to be the case, which explains why so many people have an OP starting 11 but only 82 rated overall as they have 4 or 5 bronzes on the bench to lower the rating! Yet another example of EA's interfering BS! :lol:

    Maybe you perform better with your 83 team knowing it's all on you and not your players.
    Also your " upgraded" team is nothing to rave about. It's not like a 15mil full icon team or so that would give you an edge over cheap op teams.
    Kante is hot cake though.

    Fair comment. Will have to see how it gets on this weekend league. And yeah Kante is a beast...

    I've noticed that my Nesta has been making forward runs on his own accord which is a pain as he takes ages to get back.

    2 weeks ago i finished WL with 15 wins using 600K squad.

    Today I finished WL with 14 wins with 1.5M Squad.

    Squad does not really matter so much 🤷‍♂️
